The third Manchester Peace Awards – the OSBAs – took place on March 13th  at the Ramada Piccadilly hotel in the city centre. The Outstanding Social Behaviour Awards recognise and celebrate individuals from the community who work for peace and for the benefit of young people, or who have made personal progress. It was a glittering occasion with over 200 guests, including the Lord Mayor Cllr. Alison Firth, Tony Lloyd MP, The High Sheriff of Manchester Christian Wewer and GMP Chief Constable Peter Fahy, all there to honour the finalists and winners of the 6 awards. A special award was also given by Carisma and the High Sheriff to Helen Gatenby, Director of the M13 Youth Project for “Outstanding Service to Young People”.  http://www.osbas.co.uk/

The University of Salford sponsered an award and WearPeace was represented through a display in the drinks reception area. All the people who attended the award ceremony had chance to view the designs created by Manchester and Salford Students and see the latest prototypes of the Wearpeace logo.

Jewellery students from Manchester College, Northenden Campus have taken the Wearpeace logo as a starting point for jewellery designs that respond to the anti gun crime message. We hope to take some of these designs and turn them into bracelet charms. Thanks to contribution from Rebecca Chappell, Lisa Martell, Samantha Thorley, Sophie Norton, Gill Spooner and Emily Hunter.
